Getting rid of Kinza virus : How do I remove kinza.exe virus from a flash drive/laptop?

Before being paid deeply into the healing of kinza virus, let's take into consideration verity about the same.

What is a kinza virus and what the kinza virus does?

1.    The kinza.exe virus makes the computer too slow; you gain this info in spite of the memory size you pertain with your machine.

2.    Vital system resources are constrained to response, this include but not limited to- Windows Task Manager (taskmgr.exe), Registry Editor (regedit.exe), System/Windows Command (cmd or command), System Configuration Utility (Msconfig.exe), Group Policies. However, some of the Windows tools might run or open for a few seconds too hard for us to determine if they really run.

3.    The uppermost annoyance from kinza.exe is that it extract itself and creates a lot of executable files (*.exe), Dynamic Library Linker Files (*.dll), boot.vbs files, local file/user configurations and others.

4.    Another most important thing (I Think) is FolderOptions which is disabled from Windows Explorer resulting the invisibility of hidden files and folders. This is not a big deal as you can always download small windows configuring system tools from the links provided at the sidebar of this blog.

5.    Computer Solution state that kinza don't run in COMMAND.COM, it only run cmd.com and only works on windows XP or latest Version.

How does the kinza virus transmit?

Needless to say that most of today's viruses, worms and malwares transmit via the worldwide web ie the internet. Kinza virus is not the EXCEPTION. The trio-mode for most such problems are:

·         The internet (Have you ever tried to search an illegal key or keygen to convert the trial version of an MP3 to ogg converter?)

·         The Pen Drive of your friend from which you copied data might have been infected by Kinza.exe. This is in fact more prone that the www since this mode of infection requires seamless integration plug and play, ha haa! Finally, any means of data storage media as CD which is the Kinza.exe infected.

·         It seems that you don't have updated your antivirus software for a couple of months, please do so right NOW.
